|Subject: ||Timed pause in REXX|
I need a Rexx command to pause a program for a given number of seconds.
Now, I can use time("R") and Time("E") with an infinite loop, like this.
Do While Time("E") < target
However, this crushes my system resources. Is there any kind of
command to say 'let everything else go for x seconds'? It is annoying
that waiting takes more resources than playing WAV files.
By the way, I am writing a program to run Interactive
Entertainment magazine. I am using OS/2 Warp and VX-REXX.
Please reply if you know how to do this, it is bugging the hexk
out of me.
